Study: Heart damage in children with COVID-19

Studies on adults have shown that the "corona virus" can also attack the heart and lead to long-term inflammation - even with a mild course of the disease. Doctors at the German Heart Institute in Berlin want to find out whether and how often this is also the case in children. The clinic therefore offers an MRI examination of the heart for children who have survived a "corona" infection. This gives the parents certainty as to whether the virus has also damaged the heart.

Our offer

At the Department of Congenital Heart Disease – Pediatric Cardiology Berlin, we care for patients of all ages with congenital diseases of the heart by a highly specialized team. Our range of treatment includes the entire diagnostics, treatment and therapy for congenital heart defects of any complexity.

With about 650 heart operations and approx. 400 cardiac catheter examinations per year, our hospital is one of the leading centers for congenital heart defects in Germany and Europe. A special feature is that we care for infants, children as well as adult patients up to old age under one roof.

For infants and children in particular, family integration is an important part of the recovery process. Parents are therefore involved in the care of their child at an early stage. As accompanying persons, parents can accompany their child on the day of an operation or an examination. In addition, there is always the possibility of spending the night in our pediatric care unit H4.
